Richard Masefield comes from a family of writers – the poet, John Masefield, was his cousin – and with a personal love of animals and the outdoors, he decided at a young age that he would farm and write, if necessary both at once. It took years of hard work before Richard could realise his ambition and in fact his first published novel was written while milking his herd of Friesian cows. He still lives on his farm in Sussex, with his wife Lee and together they spend as much time as possible with their large family of children and grandchildren.
